Singapore composer Bennett Bay presents music from his debut full-length album Compass. He is joined by The Ensemble, comprising Tsumugu Misugi (violin), Samuel Choon (violin), Nadene Law (cello), Axel Serik (bass), Ian Tan (drums), Yuru Lee (percussion), Cui Yihao (trumpet), Gabriel Hoe (trumpet), Jingjie Lim, Jingyun Ng and Charlene Su on vocals, as well as a very special guest.

A child is lost in the wilderness, and a mother and father grieve at their loss. Where he is, the gentle murmuring winds with its soft tendrils causes the child to quiver, while his memories of home slowly erode. The child is faced with a dilemma—to dwell in this bliss eternally or to return home.

Compass tells the story of this child finding his way home, as his family holds on to the hope that one day he shall return.
